The Bellusaurus sui is the only known species of the fossil genus Bellusaurus who lived in the middle of the Jurassic period, approximately 170 million years ago, in what is now Asia.

All Bellusaurus specimens are juveniles and were found in a bed of bones in the Shishugou Formation, Sichuan Province, China

The skulls found of the Bellusaurus were small and their bones very light. Findings of these sauropods are rare, but a complete skull does exist that shows it had a deep head.

Its teeth were spoon-shaped, and the height of its neck was slightly longer than its body, while the height of the skull was moderate.

There is the possibility that, since all the Bellusaurus finds are from young specimens, that is why their small size, and that they grew when they became adults.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news about archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
